ESA Foundation Computer and Video Game Scholarship Program

In 2007 the ESA Foundation established a scholarship program to assist women and minority students who are pursuing degrees leading to careers in Computer & Video Game Arts. This year we are pleased to extend this opportunity to graduating high school seniors, doubling the amount of awards granted from 15 to 30.

The scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at accredited four-year colleges and universities. Up to 30 scholarships of $3,000 each will be awarded annually, 15 to graduating high school seniors and 15 to current college students. The number of awards given in each category will be determined by the number of qualified applicants.

This scholarship program is administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. To apply, please visit
